This machine was planned as a replacement for the HP-85 computer. The major problem with this machine was that most of the Unix operating system was not in the onboard ROM but was provided as a stack of some 50 floppy disks from which you could load the needed part of the operating system. This was reviewed by Byte magazine in late 1985 and was covered extensivly in the Oct, 1985 HP Journal - see index below.
11 articles are found in issue Oct-1985.
